The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) describes three alternative approaches for salvage harvest and reforestation across 102,000 acres of National Forest System land that burned in 1994. The project area is northeast of the city of Boise and is located on the Idaho City and Mountain Home Ranger Districts. The proposed action (Alternative 2) would harvest fire-killed timber on approximately 81,000 acres, including Inventoried Roadless Areas (IRAs), and maintain trees for site protection, regeneration, and wildlife. Alternative 3 would implement the same management prescriptions, but harvesting activities would take place over 64,400 acres outside IRAs. Alternative 1 is the no action alternative, where ecosystem processes would be left to recover on their own.
